Upon rereading this, it actually might have happened if the thing that was unplugged was your phone extension. If so, then the landline in the other room might have rung. R. has a landline which he never answers, and he tells me it rings all the time.

But if it was all a dream, then it's interesting that the phone had an old-fashioned ring and sounded like the call was from a distance. I wonder who would have been on the line if you had picked it up? Your mother or your late partner? You, from the past? Ennis, although he didn't have a phone?

Well, it wasn't the land line that was unplugged because I saw it was the adapter I use to plug in to charge my cell phone. And in non-Dream Life, the ringer on the bedside land line.

I have my cell's ringer set to an old-fashioned phone ring tone, so it sounds like "a real telephone."  ;D

For a while I had my ring tone set to "Take on Me" by A-ha. But I forgot to silence in a few meetings, and under those circumstances a regular ring tone is definitely superior.  ::)

I suppose you heard, a few days ago, someone was making a virtual argument to SCOTUS when someone flushed a toilet in the background.  :laugh:

I did, and what's worse, I saw someone on Slate try to work out which justice it would have been. I got a ways into it and then realized I don't even want to know.

Oh, I didn't know it was a justice. I thought it was someone who was arguing the case, or someone in the background. It's even funnier that it was one of the justices. (I hope it was Kavanaugh.)

Yeah, he's already a piece of shit.

Sorry for the crudeness, but I couldn't resist.

I gathered from the article that it was a remote discussion among the justices on Zoom or something similar, except that a number of the justices keep their video off. Some even keep their audio off. But not this person, unfortunately.
